Moreover, the EU intends to improve innovation support and also helps in understanding specific drives and barriers to innovation at sector level.
    In OECD countries, public policy has direct or indirect impact on factors that affect innovative activity. All OECD countries use significant amounts of public money to support innovation activities that intend to stimulate innovation.
It is a long time since in almost all countries the general idea of IP policy has been directed to greater protection for the rights of IP holders, especially for patents.
